I’m happy with this photo, but it’s not what I want. The idea in my head is a truck coming down the road with the lights hitting the rain. This photo does get me one step closer to that idea though.
I now know I need better positioning closer to the road. I need to switch to the 40mm or 50mm. Bumping up the ISO from 3200 to 6400 will probably work, especially with the 50mm that can open up one more stop than the 40mm.
Of course, safety is a concern so I’ll be scouting out a better spot.
This was a fun shoot with the challenges presented. An umbrella is new mandatory photo gear. The rain changes everything and all that’s required for the effect is a bad day and an umbrella to keep the camera from getting rain on the lens.
